XXXTentacion found dead at the age of 20
US rapper XXXTentacion, who quickly rose to fame with two consecutive hit albums, has been killed aged 20.
Police in Broward County said XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
He was often described as one of rap’s most controversial artists and was facing domestic violence charges.
The rapper, who first found an audience by uploading songs to the website SoundCloud, had been hailed as a breakthrough talent and tributes have been pouring in from hip-hop luminaries in the wake of his death.
The county sheriff’s office said that Onfroy was leaving the dealership shortly before 16:00 local time when two armed suspects approached. At least one of them shot him before both fled the scene in Deerfield Beach, which is 43 miles (69km) north of Miami, in a dark-coloured SUV.
Social media apparently showed Onfroy slumped in his car.A witness told celebrity news website TMZ that multiple shots rang out outside the dealership.
After this incident took place everybody surrounded XXXtentacion’s car and were taking snaps. You can see all the pictures being uploaded on different social media platforms. His fans also uploaded a lot of photos. But in such condition of emergency was it really required ? Or some kind of measures would have been taken ? Is this the kind of society we live in. Maybe we are not taking just about music here but this is a wake up call for every individual.
Everybody on the internet is talking about it but this nurse on social media raised her voice and told everybody to at least be mature and react.
These are the words of the nurse on XXXTentacion’s death.
